Excel files open as read only.

By rong.tabitha ·
Excel files which are opened on Windows 2000 server do not release correctly when the user exits the program. The next time they try to open the same program Excel says the file is reserved by them and they can only open as read only. How can i resolve this?

Have you updated office 2000 with Service Pack 3. If not, this service pack includes service pack 1 and 2 and fixes numerous bugs.
